  1. Automated Analog Electronics Design Tools for Obsolete Parts

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF131057

    ABSTRACT: Ridgetop Group will develop design tools to facilitate fabrication of obsolete, radiation-hardened, precision analog components. The methodology that is developed and validated during the nine-month Phase I SBIR program will be transitioned into an easy-to-use prototype software tool during Phase II. The Ridgetop EDA tool integrates well-known commercial EDA solutions to support radia ...

  3. Real-Time Sensor Data Processing and Compression Performed On-board Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: AF131132

    ABSTRACT: The K-128 co-processor leverages insights from neuroscience to achieve superior performance. Unlike previous efforts along those lines, our approach is to create a software programmable co-processor that runs existing applications. One of the most salient characteristics of such a co-processor is its power efficiency: not just a few percent more efficient than a traditional processor, b ...

  5. Ultra-efficient Thermoelectric Cooling Module for Satellite Thermal Management

    SBC: Sheetak Inc.            Topic: AF131074

    ABSTRACT: Current waste heat management technologies from satellite payload including the sensor, control and actuators, are bulky and energy inefficient because they cannot provide on-demand site-specific cooling. Fluidic systems are not desirable for satellite applications due to leakage issues. High ZT thin film thermoelectric (TFTE) devices have the potential to overcome all these issues. How ...

  6. Reusable Extended Artificial Light Source

    SBC: TROUT GREEN TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF131176

    ABSTRACT: We propose a lamp for ultra-high speed photography according to the specifications of the solicitation. BENEFIT: The lamp design can be used for any ultra-high speed photography, particularly where the item under test is explosive or passes at sufficient speed to cause an over-pressure event.

  7. FlashLED: A Reusable Extended Light Source

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF131176

    ABSTRACT: Nanohmics proposes to develop the FlashLED, a reusable extended artificial light source. Using commercial off the shelf (COTS) light emitting diodes (LEDs) and custom optics, it is possible to create a lighting system that matches the luminous output of the flash bulb with triggerability and intensity rise-time on the nanosecond timescale. The complete system will be expandable and of ...

  8. Robust, Lightweight Wiring for Space Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF112093

    ABSTRACT: An ability to reduce the weight of cables has the potential to provide significant cost savings, reduce maintenance and improve reliability of satellites. The costs of developing and producing satellites are linearly proportional with the satellite"s weight, with each kilogram costing around $1 million when delivery-to-space costs are included. With global satellite launches expected to ...

  9. High-Frequency Energy-Deposition Actuators for Effective Scramjet Control

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF121191

    ABSTRACT: Hypersonic propulsion systems, such as supersonic combustion ramjets (scramjets) are generally expected to operate from Mach 3.5 up to Mach 7-8 and are designed for specific flight Mach numbers to achieve optimum performance. However, realistic flight vehicles will experience a wide range of flight conditions during a typical mission. These off-design flight conditions degrade the perfo ...

  10. Laser-scopic Approach to Identify, Remove and Clean Galvanic Couple Corrosion in Difficult to Access Areas

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF131192

    The proposed effort will investigate and develop a laser-scopic tool that will provide earlier and improved capabilities for corrosion-detection, -removal, -cleaning and -repair due to galvanic couples in hard-to-access areas, without damaging the underlying substrate or adjacent features. The key focus areas include system definition, power-delivery, mitigation/elimination of splatter and debris ...
